Give an introduction and an ending to your shareable Prototype!

Hi fellow designers!

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but heres a thought. As I share my Invision links to non-designers of my company, I usually like to give them some sort of an introduction screen and an ending screen. I would have to create these elements/screens and hotspots again and again, but it would be nice if there was an Invision integrated welcome for the start and a nice well done at the end of a Prototype. It would clear up any confusion where someone viewing the link may think there is more to the prototype, when they actually finished the steps intended. It would also help for times when I can't always be there to introduce or guide viewers. This way they can feel guided, they can start again or proceed to the next flow, etc. Maze has a great friendly example of how they introduce the user who is about to test a prototype. They even give a job well done with confetti when they reach the end. I think this would be fantastic to be applied for simply viewing and sharing prototypes too!

Hi Emily,

Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out here in Community with this helpful feedback! We have seen other users achieve this behavior by simply creating intro and closing screens in their prototypes. You could also add Tour Points to make the experience more seamless for your users.

If this isn't what you're looking for, can you please provide some more information on the desired behavior? Thanks again for reaching out with these suggestions!

Look forward to hearing from you,

Shaina

Thanks Shaina!

Believe it or not I never knew this existed!! It's super helpful, but a hidden feature! I have given it a go now and its solved a lot of what I was aiming for! As you mentioned, designers can explore outside of Invision custom screens for introductions and endings and then incorporate them with further hotspots, but Tour Points has the potential to lighten this extra workload for designers!  One thing still missing is a clear way to help the viewer start over. So to complete the idea behind Tour Points as they are meant to help a user walkthrough, I could see a great advantage of adding an include restart button into the feature like so:

 

This really resolves my main query though, many thanks for the help!

Emily - what a great idea! I've been making prototypes for years and typically intro my clients verbally or with additional documents. Your method makes for an even better experience.

I love your suggestion for a way to incorporate the full idea into the Tour Points feature. Thanks for taking the time to create that and share it here. 

Cheers,

Caitlin

Hi Emily


Thanks for sharing this. It's great to see designers sharing their design processes and experiences in this community. I can vouch for this as I too create tours for my participants of the prototypes I create and the value it brings to them allows for better experiences. Also with InVision Tour Point takes it that much further.


Wishing you a great day.


Stay awesome!
